John Hood: Take down confederate monuments, but be NICE about it.

(I call this continued-cocktail-party-invitation-insurance.)  “Mr. Conservative” has been tap-dancing around for months now babbling about “civility” in politics.  Here he is begging for some of that “civility” in the fight to wipe all traces of Confederate history from the face of the planet: If critics…
